Annotation: After describing the mission and organization of the U.S. Justice Department's Office of Justice Programs (OJP), this OJP Annual Report to Congress for Fiscal Year 2005 provides information and data on OJP's programs and services.
Abstract: OJP's mission is "to provide Federal leadership in developing the Nation's capacity to prevent and control crime, administer justice, and assist crime victims." This is done by providing and coordinating information, research and development, statistics, training, and support to help the justice community build the capacity it needs to meet its public safety goals. Its strategic focus is on local decisionmaking and innovation informed and assisted by Federal grants and technical assistance. Separate sections of this report describe grant programs and federally initiated programs for local communities in the following areas: law enforcement; courts; corrections; juvenile justice; victims of crime; substance abuse and crime; technology for fighting crime; and data collections and research, statistics, and evaluation. OJP grants and programs in the area of law enforcement include the Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant program, the Bulletproof Vest Partnership Program, the Body Armor Safety Initiative, Weed and Seed, Project Safe Neighborhoods, and State and local antiterrorism training. OJP programs and initiatives related to courts include the Southwest Border Prosecution Initiative, Mentally Ill Offender Act Programs, and the Tribal Courts Assistance Program. OJP programs related to corrections include Prisoner Reentry Initiative, State Criminal Alien Assistance Program, and comprehensive approaches to sex offender management. Juvenile justice programs address delinquency prevention, gang reduction and resistance, and programs related to missing and exploited children. OJP programs for victims of crime pertain to compensation, assistance, outreach, counseling, and training. OJP addresses substance abuse and crime through support for drug courts, prescription drug monitoring, and the Indian Alcohol and Crime Demonstration Program.
